an einem bitterkalten, regnerischen Tag im März 1993, die Stadt Istanbul grau und matschig, da leuchten diese Äpfel umso appetitlicher

Very beautiful presentation of this daily life scene. I like the natural image of this old moment. Well taken, have a good week.

A good scan with very attractive colours of both the apples and the buses. Also an interesting glimpse of the famous mosque in the background. A very pleasant daily life street scene!

Really nice daily life scene. I like its simplicity. I like the way the protagonists are interacting (the buyer looking at the apples, the seller looking at his customer), I like how their heads happen to be framed by a background element (the poster on the bus, and a small building), I like the inclusion of the mosque that immediately locates the scene. Good with the red of the buses and apples. One may think that the apples (the centre of the action) could have been a bit sharper, but it's an insignificant detail. Very good quality for a scanned photo.

This is not the most flattering view of Istanbul that I have seen, but the apples really brighten the scene. The interaction between buyer and seller also creates an interest and the mosque tells us that there is beauty waiting not far off.
You preserved the quality of the slide very well through the scanning.

this is a great composition, a very interesting photo. I like very much the way you have created perspective and depth from the foreground with the lovely apples that brighten up the moody day and the setting, also bringing the two heroes together. The mosque at the distance offers a discreet but utterly effective point of reference. The repetition of a few colours on various elements and textures all over the frame is striking. It brings everything together in an extraordinary way. Wonderful observation and rendering of a daily life scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
